‘Bombshell’ and ‘Joker’ Lead Wins at 7th Annual Make-Up and Hair Stylist Guild Awards

Bombshell” lead the winners’ list at the seventh annual Make-Up and Hair Stylist Guild Awards on Saturday night.

The film that sees the hair and make-up team transforming Charlize Theron into Megyn Kelly, Nicole Kidman into Gretchen Carlson and John Lithgow into Roger Ailes scooped up three awards, including best contemporary hairstyling, best contemporary make-up and best special effects make-up.

The category win for Kazu Hiro, Vivian Baker and Richard Redlefsen just about guarantees them an Oscar nomination on Monday morning.

Nicki Ledermann, Tania Ribalow and Sunday Englis won best period and/or character make-up for “Joker.” Ledermann had also worked on Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman,” which didn’t receive any nominations.

Elsewhere, HBO’s “Big Little Lies” and “Chernobyl” picked up wins in TV. The Bob Fosse-Gwen Verdon limited series “Fosse/Verdon” won best period and/or character make-up and best period and/or character hair styling.

The guild lauded its winners in daytime television and awarded Netflix’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events” in both the hair and make-up categories.

While the film adaptation of “Cats” is being deemed a catastrophe, the musical continues to win awards. “Cats” nabbed best make-up for a theatrical production (live stage).

This week’s Variety cover star Patrick Stewart was the recipient of the Distinguished Artisan Award celebrating his prolific acting career on stage and screen spanning nearly six decades.
